Authenticity Through the Eyes of Our Grandparents

Can tech and nostalgia coexist? Is it possible to utilize technology to return to an era of authenticity and craftsmanship? In the not-so-distant past, our grandparents cooked elaborate meals from scratch, and often with leftovers. They made the gifts they gave to us. They sketched out directions to their houses on a piece of paper. This was before Google maps, folks. It's hard to meet someone today who cleans, mends and creates as our grandparents once did. Such a shame. Join us for a discussion around how we can continue to innovate by remembering our roots. Despite the juxtaposition of technology and nostalgia, technology has, in fact, proven to be a great mean towards a return to what is authentic. This conversation will look at how technology plays a role in the different aspects of our lives that have drastically changed from the time of our grandparents -- we will discuss how we can turn to technology to help us cook, dress and create as our grandparents once did.
